Short answer: Yes. But then you knew that. :-) In this situation I
would expect you'd get 900Mb+ and probably very close to the full Gb.
There is something like 3% overhead in TCP/IP and Ethernet Framing so
the limit would be approximately 970Mb/s.
You are using an aggregated line on the Target system so I would focus
there first. First question is what is the physical hardware being
aggregated? If it's ports in the 181C remember those aren't supported
for aggregation unless you dedicate the entire port to an LPAR.
Something in the cover letter about "Not being sure the packets get to
the correct LPAR..." and that seemed bad for throughput.

Help me out with my math. I've got an Ethernet line on 1 lpar talking to
an Ethernet line on another lpar. They both say:
Current line speed . . . . . . . . : 1G
Current duplex . . . . . . . . . . : *FULL
They are both on our same 10.17.6 subnet.
I FTP'd a sizeable file and got these results:
Size, in bytes, of save file: 13,458,505,728
Seconds to perform transmission: 2,222
iNav's Management central says lan utilization was minimal.
iNav's says percent busy of disk was minimal. (currently 2-7%)
Source system has 64 disk arms.
Target system is a guest on the source. It has 6 equal "arms".
Shouldn't I be getting a lot better throughput? After all, 0.05 is not
I am not interested in any virtual ethernet backplane type solution due to
some H/A concerns.
